Seen from Ardnave, the Hebridean Air Services plane on its way from Islay to Colonsay (and on to Oban). Here it is passing the mouth of Loch Gruinart, Killinallan (not visible) on the right. Paps of Jura on the horizon.
A view on the way from Ardnave along Loch Gruinart to Ardnave Point in the north west of Islay. Colonsay visible in the distance.
Almost 100 years before this picture was taken in April 2019 the steam ship Wasa caught fire off Colonsay in May 1920. A nearby Fleetwood trawler was able to rescue 24 of the 28 aboard and towed the burning Wasa to Colonsay where she was beached at Balnahard (Tràigh Bàn). Today only parts of the keel held together by various iron bolts as well as some other metal parts remain. Washed up fishing nets are getting caught on the bolts.
